Umm... looks like another self-inflicted collision.

Quote:
One crew reportedly noted the ship at distance but had gone below to rouse the next watch. I know, it sounds quite incredible. What's even more hair-raising is that not only did the ship's crew not spot the yacht, but after the collision they didn't stop.
The crew saw the freighter... but chose not to keep an eye on it, instead going below to wake the next watch. Me... personally, I'd make damn sure that the freighter was safely gone by before leaving the deck.

CD-

If they had been hit by a Catalina... it would have been a miracle..since most Catalinas wouldn't be able to go fast enough to hit them.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

What I don't understand is the complete dissrespect for the Rules of the Road. I thought when you fly that flag off the stern, you are supposed to be the 'Give Way' vessel and not the 'Stand On'??

Did I miss something??

Yikes!! That would have been a liferaft situation on a fibreglass hull.

Anyone take a guess which tack is favored on that boat?

The freighter was probably German so the French boat was naturally the give way vessel!

"If they had been hit by a Catalina... it would have been a miracle..since most Catalinas wouldn't be able to go fast enough to hit them. " You'll have to excuse CD-, he sometimes gets confused between a Catalina and a Condo. In which case obviously the Condo would be faster. In fact Catalinas are soooo slow that when you untie them from the dock they won't even drift away. No it is actually the rotation of the Earth moving the dock away from the boat!!!

(Oh **** gotta go before he gets back....)

It is a FRENCH boat. They were probably unable to find their berets and get enough Gauloises lit in order to appear nonchalant on deck in a timely fashion.

'ALLO? 'ALLO? MAUDIT MARINS ESPAGNOLS! ZUT ALORS!




(Seriously, I'm glad they weren't killed, and I'm glad I have steel.)

HAHA! You guys!! If it had been a Catalina, that boat would rest on the bottom of the ocean in two halves... surrender flag or not!!

And T34, I am going to post a picture for you that will get you all excited... more excited than a fine woman... more excited than winning the lottery... more excited than having room to sit down below on your own cushion:

HERE IT IS, YOUR OPPOTRUNITY TO REACH HULL SPEED!




Now don't forget your SeaTow card incase the winds drop back down to 50 before you can get back in the slip.

HAHAHAHA!
